Disney On Ice! ~ Treasure Trove

Wowee! What a fun-filled Friday evening we had!

Grandpa and I surprised McKayla with tickets to Disney On Ice this past Friday.

Check out this awesome view!

McKayla had seen a commercial for Disney On Ice:Frozen a few weeks ago and said she wanted to go. I went looking for dates for Frozen shows and thought I had just missed the showing and the next one was going to be several hours away. (It turns out that there wasn't even a show to miss b/c Frozen never came to town BUT will be here next year :-D.)

But then Dad called me and told me about the Treasure Trove version showing in town and I jumped at the chance to go. Yeah, it wasn't Frozen but I knew McKayla would enjoy it regardless. So I ordered the tickets and waited.

I didn't tell McKayla anything about it. I wanted to surprise her. And she had absolutely no clue until we started walking up the stairs to the arena and she could hear them over the intercom talking about the Princesses.

The look on her face was priceless. She was clearly excited b/c we'd gone to pickup Grandpa and I told her we had a surprise for her, so she knew it would be something good but when she heard them over the intercom, the look on her face was like 'Nuh uh. Am I really hearing what I think I'm hearing? Am I REALLY going to see Princesses?!'

After that, she was literally bouncing with excitement. She couldn't wait to get inside and get to our seats. She didn't even want to browse the gifts for fear of missing the show. :-) She finally did "allow" Grandpa to buy her an Anna and Elsa doll tho but as soon as she had them, she was practically dragging us to our seats.

Once seated, she was glued to her seat and eyes straight ahead the whole time, laughing when the characters "fell" and cheering when the bad guys where beat.

A horrible blurry phone shot but it's the only one I

And Grandpa never smiles LOL

I think she had a great time, judging by how many people she'll tell about her night and the fact that Anna and Elsa sleep with her every night. :-)


  1. What an awesome surprise!!! It looks like she had a blast!

    1. She did! And is STILL talking about it! LOL

Revised & Edited by The Great Dane Club of America, Inc. Written text AKC approved August 10, 1976 Illustrated by Donald E. Gauther - Great Dane Breeder & Judge Copyright, 1972

1. GENERAL CONFORMATION (a) GENERAL APPEARANCE. The Great Dane combines in its distinguished appearance dignity, strength and elegance with great size and a powerful, well-formed, smoothly muscled body. He is one of the giant breeds, but is unique in that his general conformation must be so well balanced that he never appears clumsy and is always a unit--the Apollo of dogs. He must be spirited and courageous--never timid. He is friendly and dependable. This physical and mental combination is the characteristic which gives the Great Dane the majesty possessed by no other breed. It is particularly true of this breed that there is an impression of great masculinity in dogs as compared to an impression of great femininity in bitches. The male should appear more massive t…
